Pre-book Online

Tenerife South Airport can get very busy, so it’s a good idea to book your transfer in advance. Since Tenerife is a popular destination during summer and winter, you might find long queues at the airport taxi rank at any time of the year. With a pre-booked transfer, you don’t need to worry about any of this, as your driver will have your comfortable vehicle ready and waiting for you as soon as you arrive. And while your private taxi transfer generally doesn’t cost you any more than a standard Tenerife Airport taxi, you will usually get a much nicer vehicle.

Pay on arrival in Tenerife or pre-pay?

As we all know, even the best-laid plans can go wrong. And with the uncertainties of recent times added to the mix, most people are worried about paying for their travel bookings in advance. Therefore, it’s a good idea to book your transfer with a company that doesn’t take any pre-payment. With Solhop.com you can book without the risk, as no payment is taken prior to your journey. You only pay – in cash or by credit card – once your driver drops you off at your destination in Tenerife.

Benefits of a pre-booked Tenerife airport transfer

What are the benefits of a pre-booked Tenerife airport transfer?

Correct size airport transfer vehicle

Standard airport taxis can carry a maximum of 4 passengers, babies and children included. Squeezing in an additional person is not an option, as the driver would risk losing their licence. So, if your family or group of friends consists of more than 4 people, or if you are travelling with oversized luggage, you will have to take more than one taxi, which considerably adds to the cost.

However, when you book an airport transfer from Tenerife Airport in advance, you can choose a vehicle of the right size to accommodate everyone who is travelling with you, as well as all the luggage you are taking. Most of the time, a 7-seater minivan, e.g. a Mercedes Viano, is sufficient, but larger vehicles are also available. Although a larger taxi will be a little more than a standard taxi, it is still far cheaper than the cost of two taxi fares.

Peace of mind

During busy periods, taxis can be in high demand at Tenerife South Airport, so you may need to wait a while for one to become available.

With a pre-booked transfer, you can beat the queues! Your driver will be waiting for you when you arrive and take you straight to your vehicle - no queueing or waiting around. And since you are on holiday, you won't want to waste your time at the airport, when you could already be at the beach, enjoying yourself!

For your return journey, a pre-booked transfer gives you added peace of mind. You will be able to enjoy the last night of your holiday, safe in the knowledge that your transfer is already arranged. You will be collected directly from your accommodation and taken to the airport in good time, ready for the flight home.

Child seats fitted in the transfer car

If you need a car seat for your child or baby, taking a taxi at the Tenerife Airport taxi rank is a bit of a gamble, as most taxis do not carry these with them. With a pre-arranged transfer, you can request a child seat when booking. That way, you can be sure that your little ones will travel safely on your journey from the airport to your holiday accommodation.

Direct door to door transfer service

If you want to get from Tenerife airport to your holiday accommodation as quickly as possible, a private transfer is the way to go. While a shuttle bus transfer might be slightly cheaper, you will be sharing the vehicle with other holidaymakers. These need to be dropped off in various different locations along the route, which can considerably increase the time it takes to get to your destination. A private transfer vehicle is reserved exclusively for you and your travel party. You will be taken from the airport straight to your accommodation, without any detours - a perfect door-to-door service!

Where to meet your transfer driver at Tenerife South Airport

  • Your Tenerife Airport transfer driver will meet you at the official waiting point. This is clearly signposted and even marked on the floor.
  • You will find this after exiting the baggage reclaim area and entering the public arrivals hall. Your driver will be expecting you and will be holding a sign with your name on it.
  • It is worth double-checking that the driver has your details and is the correct one for the company you have booked with. Occasionally, there are some rogue drivers who will attempt to get passengers by claiming to be their allocated driver.

How to book a low cost transfer from Tenerife South Airport

  • There are a number of transfer websites offering airport transfers from Tenerife South. Most of these are easy to use. A provider that comes highly recommended is the Spanish company Solhop.
  • Most sites require payment up-front but some will give the option of paying on arrival. With Solhop.com there is no advance payment. You simply pay your driver once you have reached your destination. You can also change or cancel your booking free of charge.
  • Should you no longer need your transfer, it's really important to inform the company of your cancellation, even if you haven’t paid anything in advance. Most drivers work on a commission-only basis and won’t get paid for their time if the client is a no-show.
  • If you prefer to drive yourself you can book car hire at Tenerife South Airport.

Three very popular destinations in Tenerife are in the southern part of the island, along the west coast, and are easy to get to from Tenerife South Airport. Los Cristianos, Playa de las Américas, and Costa Adeje more or less blend into each other, with no obvious geographical division between them. However, they do all have their own, distinct character. Los Cristianos was originally a fishing village and is, therefore, the most traditional resort out of the three. Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje are purpose-built. While the former is known to be a party resort, the latter is generally a little more upmarket.

Another destination that is popular with tourists is Los Gigantes, a little further along the west coast. The resort’s name, translated as “The Giants”, refers to the imposing, steep cliff formations in the area, which rise up from the sea to heights of up to 600 metres.

On the north coast, you will find the city of Puerto de la Cruz. This former fishing village has become one of Tenerife’s top holiday resorts and has a lot to offer. Apart from stunning beaches with dark volcanic sand, it has a beautiful Old Town with colonial architecture. Further attractions are a large zoo and the Lago Martiánez, designed by César Manrique, a leisure park complex with saltwater swimming pools.

Also in the north of the island, along the east coast, is Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife and of the Canary Islands, and the seat of the Parliament. Santa Cruz is famous for hosting the second largest carnival in the world (after the Carnival in Rio), which usually takes place around February or March.
